Up Close: Radiator and Fans assembled
The T12 comes with a pair of the same Silent series fans that are included with the other members of the Kelvin family. The fans are rated at 1700 RPM and have PWM control. We of course test at the full 12V maximum speed to remove any doubt about noise and performance being affected by down-volting. we have to say we've been particularly impressed by these fans on the other units so have high hopes for the sonic signature of the T12
Once assembled with both of the 120mm fans in a push pull set up, the T12 is a bit of a chunky Monkey. In fact the whole shooting match is some 90mm thick, which will for the greater part negate any ideas of roof mounting. It sould though fit nicely in the rear fan position of most cases.
The tubing is 9/11mm and is very flexible. To reduce the chances of kinking Fractal have added anti kink coiling to the tubing, and while we recognise that this is not aesthetically to every ones taste it does do the job, and at the end of the day you can always remove it should you so desire.
